Removed iso-testing, as this seems to have been reported against Lubuntu…but 18.10 Lubuntu doesn't use LXDE. It uses LXQT. So unless this applies to lxqt-terminal, it doesn't apply.

This bug was fixed in the package lxterminal - 0.3.2-1

lxterminal (0.3.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream release:
    - Fix bug with libvte 0.54 where closing 1 tab can cause other tabs to
      be closed.
  * Add gbp.conf for gbp config
  * Use debhelper 11
  * Bump standards-Version to 4.2.1
